[Owasp-ireland] MacBook Pro Spec for Pen Testing?

For a number of different reasons, I need to look at getting a MacBook Pro.  Mostly will be used for Appsec/Mobile Appsec (iOS and Android) pen testing .  I'll need to have the ability to run a VM (virtual box - Windows and Kali).  

The 13inch MacBook looks a lot cheaper that a 15inch (with Retina).  I doubt the Retina display will be of much use to me, but the ability to choose up to 16gb does sound useful for VMs.

I'm not that keen on the MacBook Air since it doesn't have a built-in ethernet port, but would be interested to hear if anybody is otherwise happy using a Thunderbolt/Ethernet adapter.

It's been a LONG time since I've used a Mac, so I'd really appreciate any feedback from anybody on what they consider to be decent spec for my purposes.
